    1 year in melbourne xxx

    well its 1 year today that we (me and our 3 kids ) arrived in melbourne 2 months after my hubby who arrived 2 months before us as he had a job ! and they needed an immediate start (that was not good driving away from heathrow airport with 3 children but we did it in 8 weeks we were reunited ) and its been a rollercoaster ride xxxx especially as you go through everythin to get the visa !!!! it took us 2 years and once you get it you think yipppee xxx house will sell and we shall all move to oz hunkey dorey together ( well we were off to perth !!!!! LOL xxxx but as i said hubby had job in melbourne x he had to go and house got rented out xxx (another story !!!! ) (and still for sale !!! yeh another story ) but it took me 8 weeks including xmas to get all our belongings packed and shipped and flights sorted so my 1 year in melbourne has been an adventure !!!! the end of the 13 year drought ! and a winter in the uk and a winter here !!!! be warned its not warm here in the winter i must have thought was goin to ruddy queensland !!!!! i gave away my winter clothes its not like the uk freezin but houses do not have central heating or double glazing so when it drops to 9c at night it is cold x (but make sure you get a house with heating !!!!! ) (big mistake made by us !!!!!) and the other side of the coin is it gets hot !!!!!! although i havent had the 40s yet !! it hit 35 !!!!! so get cooling !!! ) but hey thats melbourne xxxx also i have made lots of contacts , friends on here xxxx and i would like to thank pio for that xxx and even facebook xxxx so thank you guys xxxxx all of ya xxxx i cant list ya all but xxx it made the move easier so on the plus side we are glad we made the move x its not cheap and its not living the dream thats advertised on the tv x (thanks to the exchange rate !!) its the same **** just a different country and maybe a bit harder than the uk as nothing is straight forward ! not even a shop ! give me asda or tescos or even argos any day as things do need to move along in australia ! AND TOMMORROW IS BANK HOLIDAY ! HAPPY AUSTRAILA DAY XXXXXX carole x

    NARANGBA INFO FOR YOU xxx

    Narangba is about 40 mins from the sunshine coast and about 50mins into the CBD of Brisbane. From my house it takes me 10 mins to the local shopping mall at Morayfield and 15mins the other way to the North Lakes Shopping plaza, 20 mins to Strathpine Plaza and 25 mins to Chermside which I have yet to visit so will let you know on that one! Its massive though... There are 2 primary schools in the area - Jinibara state school www.jinibarrass.eq.edu.au and Narangba Valley state school Home page My daughter attends Jinibara as we live outside the catchment for Narangba Valley and it is a lovely school. She used to cling to me at school time in Uk but here she is so confident and happy and a different child! The secondary school has an excellant reputation here - Narangba Valley SHS There are alot of nurserys in the area - 2 of which are right next to the schools. www.sesamelane.com.au Tadpoles Early Learning Centres - Child Care in South East Queensland www.childcare.com.au My local shops are less than 5 mins by car - they consist of Woolworths (grocery store - not like in UK) pizza place, dvd/video rental, newsagent, bakery, fish n chip shop, bank, chemist, dentist, real estate, pool shop, tavern, gym, vets and a tavern. There is another small selection of shops in Narangba at Main Street which include doctors, dentist, library, chemist, pizza, IGA (grocery's) real estate, butchers and more, 5 mins to Burpengary and you have another selection of shops including the Burpengary Plaza, Subway, Red Rooster (like KFC) gym, and many more. When we need a beach fix we go to Bongaree on Bribie Island (20mins away) or Settlement Lagoon ,Redcliffe(20 mins away) which are both fantastic for families. Redcliffe City Council - Discover Redcliffe and have the time of your life We spent Xmas day on Bongaree with friends having a barbi and enjoying the Kayaks with all the kids. Brisbane Queensland Australia - suburbs - maps - accommodation - events - street and business directory - restaurants - ourbrisbane.com is a really good site for finding suburbs you may like and anything you need to know about schools, things to do etc. Real Estate, Property, Land and Homes for Sale, lease and rent - realestate.com.au is great for sussing out rental prices etc. Hope this gives you enough to be getting on with!!!!

    Cold feet xxx

    We started this whole journey and thoughts of moving to Oz nearly 3 years ago. Then last June, we finally made the agonising decision to take the plunge and go for it....the migration process ball started to roll and we have been sooooooooo excited ever since. I have good days where I just can't wait to go. Our house has been on the market since last July, and as yet still no joy. We embarked on this journey in the hope that as a family, we would have a better life. Why is it today, I feel like we are making a big mistake? If we move to Perth, my husband may end up working longer hours? possibly for less money? And for what? We have no family there. I love the life that we have here so am now getting confused. I'm only human and know that we all from time to time must question as to wether we are doing the right thing. On the sale of our house( all our money is tied up in it) we are hoping to start our new life with £150k ($300k..ish) and am now wondering if this is realistic for us to continue having a nice life in Oz............ can anyone set my mind at ease. Sorry for moaning. I am female after all .!.!.!.! xxx
